NASA Head Plans to Visit Russia for Talks With Roscosmos Chief, Date Uncertain - Roscosmos

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 10th February, 2019) NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine plans to visit Russia in order to continue talks with Dmitry Rogozin, the chief of the Russian state space agency Roscosmos, but the date of the visit has not been coordinated yet, Roscosmos spokesman Vladimir Ustimenko told Sputnik on Sunday.

"Roscosmos General Director Dmitry Rogozin invited NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine to visit Russia to continue talks, during a teleconference. The US side has an intention [to come], but the date of the visit has not been coordinated yet," Ustimenko said.

Rogozin extended the invitation on January 15, and on the same day NASA confirmed that Bridenstine was ready to visit Russia or Russia's Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan to continue talks.

Rogozin was supposed to visit NASA headquarters in February, but Bridenstine canceled the invitation in January, under pressure from US senators.
